    I think we have a better shot at catching Portland or New Orleans. ANd that's a long shot. Battier has made Memphis a tough beat. I thought they would lose to Dallas and OKC. Especially on a back2back. Nope they are gelling. They may have a tougher schedule but if they are beating Dallas and OKC type teams it doesn't matter.

    How are we supposed to move up when the best teams in the east can't beat the borderline playoff teams in the west. I want to make the playoffs like everyone else but this 14th pick **** sucks.

    They were gelling before Battier.

    But I agree we may not catch them.

    And Portland has won in Orlando (without Howard). Let's see what happens with the Memphis game, OKC still have time.

    This is the problem when you fall so far behind, not only the games to makeup but the number of teams to jump over. I just hope for all of them to lose and the Rox to win. Jazz and Hornets are fading and we control our fate vs PHX so anything can happen but it will be tough.

    Thunder can come back, are they missing anyone? OKC seem to be the comeback type of team any ways.

    Thats what happens when you give a team a starting player and they dont have to give you back anything they use off the bench but a prospect. They definately dont get worse when you just added to their depth.

    Here comes OKC!

    Battier is doing what he does best, the difference is that on the Memphis he doesn't need to score.

    Huh? They're about to enter the fourth quarter against OKC. They could easily lose that game. We just need to keep winning games and hope someone slips, but to be honest I DO think Memphis will be the team to slip.

    Nice... at least, Okc back in the game.

    This night can still be good for us if both Mem and Noh lose...

    Ain't nobody gonna help us out. These teams are over .500 for a reason-- they win more often than they lose.

    NOLA will likely lose in Chicago tonight and play Dallas next..

    Chris Paul died yesterday and the team is playing poor...

    making the playoffs is easy money ;)
